     The complete review saw good traffic in April.
     New titles scratched near the top fifteen, but none broke in; it was all old standards.
     Two prominent author-deaths -- Lars Gustafsson and Kertész Imre -- did see their author-pages vault into the top five.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014 , and 2015 lists.
